Imagine that you’re out riding your bike one evening. Maybe you’re riding for exercise or maybe you’re headed somewhere, using a bicycle as a cheaper alternative to a car. Regardless, you’re on your bike with your mind on your destination.
Then, it happens. Without warning you’re struck by a car. In an instant you’re on the ground. You’re seriously injured, you need help, but the person that hit you is nowhere to be found. They’ve fled the scene. It’s a nightmare scenario, and it’s one that a Colorado State student suffered through over the weekend.
According to witnesses, the young student from Colorado Springs was riding through Fort Collins when his bike was clipped by a passing vehicle. He was violently thrown to the ground, and there was no doubt he was injured. In fact, the woman that struck him even got out of her car to check but quickly jumped back in and took off when others came to help.
The student was rushed by ambulance to the Medical Center of the Rockies where he is being treated for serious injuries. Colorado police are still searching for the woman, hoping to bring swift justice against the hit-and-run driver.
